New Prusaslicer / g-code viewer-2.4.2 no more able to open G-Code files on MacOS 10.15 and earlier : unknown file format ...

Error returned when trying to open .Gcode files.

Is Prusaslicer really no more able to read .Gcode files ?

Might be an issue with older MacOS. 12.3.1. opens them fine in the g-code viewer 2.4.2.

Ok, thanks for your confirmation.

But even on my macOS Monterey 12.3.1 it is also no more working since I upgraded the Prusaslicer to 2.4.2.

I'll try to go back to the previous version of Prusaslicer.

I suggest you try a fresh download and if the problem persists either contact Prusa Support or report the a bug on Github.

Did you replace the whole package or just the slicer.app? I replaced the package completely and it works as usual. MacOS Monterey 12.3.1 and PrusaSlicer 2.4.2.

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

As suggested, I removed everything,  prusaslicer.app and all settings and rebooted.
I installed a fresh download of prusa3d_mac_2_4_2.dmg and had to reconfigure everything.
The app is starting and working properly when opening .STL files.
When trying to open a .GCODE file, following error is returned : "Unknown file format. Input file must have .stl, .obj, .amf(.xml) or .prusa extension" ...

I removed everything once again, installed prusa3d_mac_2_4_1.dmg and reconfigured all settings.
No more error returned, everything is working properly, .GCODE files can be opened.

Now going to Prusa assistance and open a ticket ...

I am also having this problem with 2.4.2, in both MacOS 10.13 and 12.3.  I can only open gcode files (in the gcode previewer) if PrusaSlicer is already open. If it is not, then I get the error message described above.

OK I SOLVED THE PROBLEM. YOU CAN OPEN GCODE FILES WITH A DOUBLE CLICK BUT YOU MUST HAVE THE PRUSASLICER PROGRAM OPEN BEFORE
